Printer cartridge recycling program

August 5, 2011

It benefits both the environment, and the Rochester Public Library. That is the purpose of an Eagle Scout Leadership Service Recycling Project designed by Bruce Gregoire, a member of Boy Scout Troop 29, sponsored by Rochester Central Lutheran School. He met with several businesses who’ve agreed to donate used printer cartridges to the library.

The public is invited to put used ink jet, laser printer cartridges and even old cell phones in labeled bins in library entrance or outside near the bookmobile garage door after hours. A volunteer will send the cartridges away to be recycled.

In 2010, we made over $400 with this project, which was used to support the library. “A few businesses I talked to did not have a plan to recycle their cartridges,” Bruce said. “I hope my project benefits the environment and the Library.” Any individual, business, or organization that wants to participate should drop their cartridges off at the library.

This program has continued, thanks to Connie Havers and Paul Koeller.

Please encourage your friends to bring their used cartridges to the library.
